There are many plastic surgery options and offers on the market today. But which ones are best suitable and most effective for women? Here are five of the most popular plastic surgery methods you should know about.

1. Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is also called augmentation mammoplasty. You are probably quite familiar with this one. It is the general name of surgeries done to enhance or change the look of a woman’s breast. Depending on how big or small you want your breasts to be, your surgeon can make personal recommendations to suit your body.

There are different types of breast implants, including gummy bear, silicone or saline implants. Many patients love gummy bear breast implants, because they have a more natural look and retain their shape well. There is no liquid leakage in case an implant ruptures. Although gel-filled breast implants are less firm than gummy bear implants, they are still cohesive and feel even more natural. Saline-filled breast implants are a good choice for those who want the smallest possible incision.

2. BodyTite Liposuction

BodyTite does exactly what it sounds like: tightens the skin and dissolves fat. This is done through minimally invasive radio frequency. It is a good choice for people who have often tried to lose weight but to no avail. The biggest benefit is that it requires only tiny incisions. This means less scarring and less chance of infection — good news for anyone who has considered plastic surgery procedures for health and beauty. BodyTite patients report hardly any bruising, pain, and/or discomfort, and the recovery period is quick. You can often go back to work the day after your procedure.

But BodyTite’s radiofrequency waves do more than just dissolve unwanted fat. They stimulate the production of collagen, which results in less visible cellulite. This is what makes BodyTite so popular.

3. Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is popular with women who envision a more beautiful vagina and comfortable intercourse. Some people, as a result of genetics or birthing, may have large inner lips covering their clitoris. This causes a lot of discomfort. Now, with Labiaplasty, they find a successful solution.

There are so many benefits to Labiaplasty, including improved hygiene, less pain, better self-confidence, better sex and an overall feeling of higher self-worth. And what women wouldn’t want all those good things!

4. A Mommy Makeover

“Mommy Makeover” is a term for moms who come in for an all-in-one solution. In a single day or night, they can avail of a plastic surgery package that includes a tummy tuck, breast lift and/or augmentation, and liposuction.

These are very popular with new moms who want to get their pre-baby body and confidence back. Although swelling, bruising and pain do occur in the post-op recovery stage, compression bandages and medication help. Expect to rest and avoid strenuous activities for about least six weeks. And then, expect to rock that beautiful, new body!

5. The Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery is also called abdominoplasty. It is one of the most successful and loved types of plastic surgery. It can help strengthen weak abdominal muscles while reshaping the body form. During the tummy tuck surgery, your skin will be separated from the abdominal wall, and then the muscles of your abs will be tightened. Excess skin is removed, and other skin is tightened.

Patients can expect less than a week recovery at home before returning to normal work duties. But you should try to walk about and move your body gently during this stage. Even light exercise is recommended. The results are long-lasting.
